Default Breaking in an unmatched pack.

Hey, I just received some unmatched IB3800's. I'm wondering what's the best way to break them in? Full charger, then full discharge to 0v a couple times?

I've got a 30amp discharger and then I've got a Novak Smart tray that can bring it down to 0.

Thanks.

Put them together, charge them and run them. No such thing as breaking them in. You can cycle them once if you want to get an idea of voltage and runtime and stuff but otherwise just run them. Charge them at 5-6 amps with a cutoff of 0.03 for the pack. Always discharge them at 30-35 amps outside of the car.
